So far the only things i have seen that we cant make the PS3 do yet are
-make it play copied games (duh!)
-Region free DVDs and and PS2 games
-Allow the RSX to be used for homebrew apps
Hopefully those things will drive the hacking community into developing some form of hack.

- only 256MB out of the 512MB of RAM available to Linux
- GPU not available to Linux (Everything must be software rendered)

I have a feeling its going to be a lot longer than it took for the 360. Because Sony is letting the PS3 do all this homebrew stuff out of the box, it will take a bit longer for people to find reasons/motivation to hack it.
360 hasn't been modded yet, although its drive was within a few months. If you want to say the so-called "mod chip" that can implement that DVD hack without plugging directly into a computer is a mod... you're still talking most of a year. Technically, PS3 was "hacked" by that standard the same day it was released due to the hard drive. And more fully hacked with bootable arbitrary OSs before the US launch.
Will PS3 take longer than a year? I'm guessing not at this rate.
And isn't running arbitrary OSs already "hacked"?

The PS3 will be hacked when it does things that it wasnt designed to do. Eg, use the RSX and Grahpics accelration in linux or homebrew apps.
I think because of the 'upgrades' you can do to the PS3, it will take a litle while longer for the hacking scene to build up momentum if you see what i mean. Sony made a bold move to let people install all this hombrew stuff.....but they did it to discourage hackers. We will see if it pays off in the future.

And a very good point that is......at this point in time its a bit pointless, but when blu-ray and HD-DVD become mainstream and cheap, then its a viable option.
Thats also why itll take a bit longer for the hacking scene to take off. Because the 360 used standard DVD's, which are cheap-as now, so that made it easier to hack the 360 and test things...

Who cares. Way too expensive to mod for me. I'm not about to fork out for a fricken blue ray burner... pshh... Btw, how much do you think 50gb blue ray discs cost? Case and point.
Well instead of hacking it to make backup games on ur pc why not just hack it to burn the games straight to the ps3's hard drive?

Why not make it like the x-box 1 and try to burn the games to the hard drive? Try and get a FTP connection, all that stuff (even though this will need a modchip) ---Still an amazing point. Has to be ANOTHER way. I mean I can't beleive we have to wait for BD to go "mainstream." It'll take years, and by that time PS4 will be out.

That would be a lot better solution.....now, just how do we go about doing that? lol

Now all I have to say is...Team Xecuter...please help.

Famous last words right there.....
Im sure its possible to make the ps3 do all that, but finding a way to make the ps3 do that is a completly different story. I really wish I could help hack the PS3, but i just dont have the knowledge about exactly how computer/console hardware works and how to go about finding holes in the system. (which is why im planning to study Electrical engineering when i go to uni )
